Job opportunities

BIFOLD welcomes job applications from interested parties year-round.

Ideal candidates are those who seek to challenge themselves academically, are passionate about data science and computer systems engineering, and possess expertise in Big Data analytics and Machine Learning, benchmarking, data science, scalable data management, scalable processing technologies that leverage hardware-based solutions, stream processing, or visual analytics.
In addition, you should have experience in two or more of the following: big data frameworks (e.g., Apache Flink, Apache Spark), database systems (e.g., SQL, NoSQL), and programming languages (e.g., Java, Javascript, Scala, C/C++, Python). Good knowledge of both German and English are strongly desired. However, at a minimum, candidates must be able to communicate in English.

If not stated otherwise in the job posting, job applications should be directed to coordination@bifold.berlin.
In general, applications must include a cover letter (specifying target position, and including the job reference number, when available), CV, academic transcripts, and letters of recommendation. Note: Postdoctoral Researcher applicants must also provide examples of past publications.

Open positions:

3 Positions: Research Assistant (TU Berlin, Database Systems and Information Mangement)

Working field: Our research focuses on data analysis and programming models that allow analysts or data scientists to develop analyses even without knowledge of system programming. Among other things, we want to investigate how automatic optimization can be used to efficiently run a data analysis program without changes on massively distributed environments as well as on simple CPUs or multicore computer systems. One of the main focus is on the efficient processing of complex data analyses (e.g., iterations and distributed state computations) that occur in machine learning, signal processing, speech processing, or mathematical programming applications.

Employer: Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin – Faculty IV – Institute of Software Engineering and Theoretical Computer Science/ Database Systems and Information

Salary grade: E 13 TV-L Berliner Hochschulen

Starting date: At the earli­est poss­ible

Closing date: 27/09/21

Reference number: IV-178/21

2 Positions: Research Assistant (TU Berlin, Database Systems and Information Mangement)

Working field: Our research focuses on the declarative specification of methods of data analysis, e.g. machine learning, statistics, or signal processing as well as their execution and automatic optimization in massively distributed environments. We also design a novel programming model – based on concepts of functional programming, compiler construction, and database systems – that supports the user in developing and executing even the most complex, data-intensive applications in a distributed and fault-tolerant form on our platform without any knowledge of system programming.
